Raptor 52 in. 23 HP Kawasaki V-Twin Hydrostatic Zero-Turn Mower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Machine All Good but the delivery, white glove delivery I was told that the mower would be delivered and put in my garage, the 52" mower came on A strait truck with A 36" lift gate to wide to use the driver backed up to A bank and almost turned the mower over un loading it, and wanted to leave it there saying white glove delivery is just dropped at the site I went and got gas, and wouldn't sign his paper work until I herd it run to make sure it was ok, this is not A complaint"" BUT HOME DEPOT YOU NEED A BETTER DELIVERY SORCE FOR THIS PRODUCT, Dale Reece Hamilton AL 35570

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid machine Cuts great, excellent motor, took awhile to get used to the zero turn controls as they are very touchy but I bet they will smooth out a bit over time as it gets some cutting time. After doing a good bit of research I chose this easily over the Toro. Very happy with my decision. I know Hustler invented the zero turn and hopefully the durability will excellent. I used to have 2 Ariens tractor mowers and both of their transmissions went out after a few years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice! But Although a good choice, the deck has a tendency toward scalping and uneven cutting. Number of anti-scalping wheels seems to be the answer. Most stamped deck units have more than two. Seems a shame to manufacture such a rugged mower but stop short of making sure that it out performs stamped deck models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the engine offered on this mower I have heard and read a lot about different engines offered on a variety of mower manufacturers. The overwhelming conciseness is that the best engine available today for lawn mowere of this size is the kawasaki. I am glad to see this engine available on this mower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs an extra tire on deck It is a good tractor compared to others I've had. Yet they fall short on the deck it bounces allot. I noticed it only has two small tires on deck compared to other brands, maybe that is the reason.
Date published: 2014-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in the USA This mower seems about as solid as it gets deck-wise and frame-wise. Though the wheel hydraulic motors make a slight squeeling sound, this doesn't affect the performance. Overall, a great cut for the price. It's also stickered Made in the USA on the side, a BIG bonus for me. And the engine, though not American but probably made in America, has the reliability of a Toyota(Japanese). The only drawback is that it doesnt come with an hour meter, but they are super-easy to install. With proper care, it ought to last forever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too good to be true I purchased this mower due to price and decent reviews. I had a bolt break and the deck dropped in the first 30 minutes of use. I had parts overnighted and was able to cut my lawn. I finished cutting my lawn and I had fuel leaking. I found a loose fuel line. Clearly on this LOW END unit quality is sacrificed. I was lucky enough to return it for a full refund. Its pretty sad that I couldn't even get 2 hours of use without issues.
